Crockpot Split Pea Soup with pork

I have always loved split pea soup but rarely ever make it. And since my husband is allergic to msg and sodium nitrates we can’t eat ham. Regardless, for this recipe I used boneless pork chops instead and it came out wonderful!

Split Pea soup is a wonderfully hearty soup and very easy to make when using a crockpot.

  • 1/4 cup dried onions or one small onion, diced
  • Cracked Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 lb thin cut boneless pork chops

Place the pork chops on bottom of the crockpot. Next arrange the split peas in the crockpot in an even layer. Add the carrots, celery, and onion over the split peas.

Pour the broth and water into the slow cooker and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook on high for 5 to 6 hours or until peas are soft. Place in a bowl with a dollop of sour cream and ENJOY!
